clearing out space

New school year’s resolution, be back in this space! My poor neglected blog. If it was a physical object it’d be sitting in the corner next to my yoga mat. Both of which I’m determined to find time for this Fall. Right now I’m working on cleaning up my craft room. Or cleaning OUT is maybe a better term. I’m being buried under the clutter and chaos and need space to breath. I’d love to take every single thing out of here, repaint the whole space bright crisp white and then bring each object back in one at a time, taking time to really ponder its fate. Unfortunately that’s not really feasible, so I’m making do with a nice Fall purge.

Things I’ve thrown away, piles of half-sewn doll clothes that I was going to “get to” sometime during past 10 years. What I kept, those that mostly resembled finished outfits, now live in this cute metal basket I treated myself to.


My next accomplishment was to banish all non-doll hair yarn to the basement. I commandeered the art cart for the rest of it. I’m excited about this cart o’ yarn! In this pic they look like they’re in yarn jail, hee.

The trickiest bit of course is what to do with all the dolls that don’t go to the shop. These two Kit, Chloe & Louise dolls are a good example. The girl with the long hair is made from a super soft wool which is lovely to squeeze but not really firm enough to hold up her heavy head of yarn hair. The red head is lacking clothes. She’s wearing cute but barely finished overalls and needs a mom who can sew that could set her up. If either of these girls would be loved in your home leave me a comment which you’d like and I’ll do a quick drawing tomorrow. If you could pay the shipping that’d be awesome. I know these two are ready to be KonMari’d away to a better home!

    I’d love to make something for that cute redhead! Or really either one. I have been a fan of your dolls for a long time. First discovered your blog because of the Betsy doll.

  2. Elizabeth Markey says:

    I would love to give either a good home — especially the dark-haired beauty! Both are lovely!

  3. Jenny says:

    These are both adorable! I wouldn’t mind either of them, but if I had to choose 1, I’d choose the redhead. I’ve been working through your Make Along doll patterns and would love to give her an entire wardrobe. I’m also more than happy to pay shipping and handling to Australia.

    My daughters would be so excited to take care of the brown doll! They are multiracial and we are always on the lookout for beautiful dolls with brown skin. We can happily cover shipping expenses.

    Oh my, I would love to give either of these girls a good home! I just finished making two dolls from your book and I had so much fun!

    Either doll would have a home with us. Or maybe with my niece if I could let her go 🙂 I really should be konmariing my own craft room!! Happy to pay shipping.

    I would love to give the red haired dolly a home , my daughter would love her. Happy to pay shipping.

  8. Tonia says:

    Oh, I think they are both lovely! I especially love that long brown hair, and would love to give her a home.

  9. Jeni Smith says:

    I love both dolls, but I’d love to give that red haired girl a home with my red haired girl.

    On another note, my craft room has become a catch-all room and it needs help, too, but the process is so overwhelming! More power to you!
